Jumping From a Moving Train

 

Jump from the last car.

 

Wait

for the

train

 

to slow

if you have time.

 

Pick a landing spot.

(Final decision?)

Soft.

No

obstructions.

(Your choice.)

 

Bend your knees and get low.

(Whatever it takes.)

 

Get perpendicular and leap as far

as possible.

(Gotta start somewhere.)

 

Roll.

Cover your

head

with your

arms

 

and pray.
